'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

Fitness trackers are great, but their style can sometimes leave a bit to be desired. Not to mention, they can often be a bit pricey, considering their narrow purpose. On the other hand, smartwatches can be even more expensive when you don't need all their bells and whistles.

Fortunately, you can get an affordable fitness tracker with smartwatch functions. This stylish GTS 2 Mini Smart Watch by Amazfit is a great fitness companion, but it can do much more. It's currently on sale for $54.99, the best price you'll find online.

Naturally, this watch tracks daily activities and monitors your health, including heart rate, blood-oxygen saturation, and more. It will even help you to stay motivated and active with smart notifications. You may also appreciate the Alexa integration, which allows you to control your smart home devices without grabbing your phone. A Pomodoro clock is also included, which can help you stay productive.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 on Amazon, the GTS 2 offers a customized experience tailored to your needs. For example, you can choose over 80 watch face themes showcased on a vibrant 1.55-inch AMOLED display. Or upload your own photos as a background and customize the modular dial to illustrate what's most important to you.

With this smartwatch, you can remotely control your smartphone's camera via Bluetooth to take photos. It's 5-ATM water-resistant, so you can wear it to the beach and in the rain. The 14-day battery life means it's always on and ready to roll. While its lightweight, sophisticated design makes it a perfect companion for indoor and outdoor activities.

If you want an affordable fitness tracker with smartwatch functions you can actually use, get this black GTS 2 Mini Smart Watch today for $54.99, down from $99. You can also get it for the same price in Dark Blue, Pink, White or Silver.
